I've had four all nighters in the past week and the other nights I've slept 40mins-3.5 hours, so yeah, I need some ******* sleep before I become a serious threat to myself or others if I'm not already there yet (and last night made me think I am but maybe my roommate is just prone to violent words). I was like "fk this" and howled with the coyotes at the moon last night.

Anyways.

I obviously can't do any med changes because I guess my pharmacy runs a month or two behind where the docs are at. Pdoc raised my Belsomra from 5mg to 15mg and raised my Abilify to 25mg because I'm in a "psychotic depression." (**** her opinion but yeah, I guess if being depressed and having tactile hallucinations makes a psychotic depression even if the tactile hallucinations aren't a "break from reality schizoaffective psychosis" and rather feel like I was just sleeping in various crisis centers and shelters and they're probably real and I probably actually do have bugs on me and I'm also probably having flashbacks to when I WAS HAVING HANDS ON ME because that's what we were talking about at the pdoc appointment!) but I guess those changes won't be in effect intil next month

What kind of schedule should I have for the day? I don't use any screens after dinner until I decide "screw it, no hope for sleep." No caffeine after noon. I start winding down around 8 and lay down by 9:30.

I don't get too much sleep very often but have you tried staying awake until, say 11. Personally, I don't need much sleep right now to feel rested and just accept that my sleeping patterns have changed.

I haven't *tried* staying awake until 11, but I've stayed awake until 4am.
11 is when the bear is asleep and making all his loud snoring bear noises and my head sounds like "Fk you S-bear. Shut the fk up. I wanna go in there and plug his nose with carrots and his throat with an orange. How is it fair this dude just gets to lay down and crash into the loudest deepest sleep ever for 12 hours while here I am on a Tuesday haven't sleept since Friday night.

And I can't wear ear plugs. The feeling bothers me more than the noise.

So yeah, 11 is typically my wake up time.
